Goblin Market Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


Most of the sexy stuff in "Goblin Market" is implied, rather than explicitly described. There are some lines that are almost ludicrously erotic – they're so over-the-top that it's hard not to laugh as you read them. Yet Christina Rossetti insisted her whole life that it was a children's poem. So we're going to compromise, and give the poem a PG-13 rating.
